1758 December 24 (Sunday). So cold I omitted the Public Reading both a. and p.m. I was afraid while I was in the pulpit, one of my Feet have been touched by the Frost: but through divine Favour I escaped. Preached a. and p.m. on 2 Cor. 4.16. Old Mrs. Tainter and Miss Betty Johnson dined here. The latter tarrys over night.
